Simple Avocado Salad

avocado saladI have been having many busy days lately, and the quickest lunch for me to make in the morning is a salad! It is easy if you make the dressing the night before (or already have some on hand) and in the morning you can just toss some romaine lettuce and vegetables in a to-go container in less than 5 minutes. This simple avocado salad is one of my favorite salads, especially with a lime dressing. It tastes so fresh! You can add other items to it, such as black beans and cilantro, and even turn it into a fiesta salad and top with sour cream and salsa – yum!

This week has been pretty uneventful. I am eagerly waiting for my rotations schedule (should be coming out Friday *fingers crossed*) so I will know what areas in the hospital I will be working in for the next year starting in a few months. The half-marathon is creeping up on me. Yesterday I ran 5 miles and it nearly killed me (after taking a 2 week vacation over the holidays from running – bad bad bad idea). Today I am going to the gym for another run. I wonder if I will be this good about working out when the race is over? 😉

    I love this! And I think the lime dressing on the avocado would be delicious. Congrats on keeping on with your training for the half-marathon. I’m lying on the couch exhausted just thinking about it xx
